Tuk-tuk

Jakarta punya bajaj, Bangkok punya tuk-tuk. Kendaraan roda tiga ini wira-wiri di tengah tengah kota Bangkok. Mengantar penumpang dari satu tempat ke tempat lain.

Tuk-tuk atau “sam lor” dalam bahasa Thai, artinya tiga roda. Selain bus, MRT, BTS tuk-tuk menjadi alternatif media angkutan yang bisa dipakai untuk menjelajah kota Bangkok. Tuk-tuk terkenal dengan suaranya yang cempreng. Kendaraan ini mampu meliuk gesit membelah kemacetan di Bangkok.

Bentuk tuk-tuk memang uniq, para turis kerap tergoda untuk naik. Namun hati-hati ketika naik tuk-tuk terkadang turis sering lupa untuk menawar. Beberapa hal yang perlu di ketahui sebelum naik tuk-tuk keliling Bangkok, tarif normal rute jarak sangat pendek sekitar 50 bath (sekitar 15 ribu)

Para turis sangat disarankan dapat memperkirakan biayanya menurut jarak. Ongkos naik tuk-tuk bervariasi tergantung jarak bisa jadi tergantung mood si pengemudi. Oleh sebab itu, tawar menawar harus dilakukan sebelum tuk-tuk mengantarkan ke tujuan. Hati-hati juga dengan modus mereka menawarkan untuk mengantarkan ke tempat belanja dengan harga murah dan istimewa karena ada banyak penipuan dan penjambretan berawal dari modus tersebut.

Bangkok itu mirip Jakarta. Kemacetan lalu lintas terjadi pada jam-jam (07.00-09.00, 17.00-19.00) jadi tidak disarankan naik tuk-tuk pada jam-jam tersebut untuk menghindari asap karena tuk-tuk memang jenis kendaraan roda tiga yang terbuka.

@deendatoto, bagaimana apakah ada yang penasaran ingin naik tuk-tuk?
